Fully funded defense appropriations bill getting a late jumpstart

It may be late, but the Defense Department might end up getting its 2017 funding after all. The House is expected to make moves on a nearly $619 billion appropriations bill next week, said House Armed Services Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas).

The $619 billion topline is in line with the 2017 defense authorization act, which allows Congress to give DoD about $569.5 billion in base budget money and $59.5 billion in emergency war funding.
